We have a limited number of slots per testing time each day during each testing period. All requests for testing must be made through the supplied Belt Testing Application. Due to the large number of students wanting to test, NO REQUESTS will be taken personally by Sigung Joe Peel or any other class instructor.
There is a non-refundable fee for testing and must be rendered at the time of testing. This fee includes the test, belt, and certificate. “No shows” will be charged $10.
Full uniform, as stated in the Student Handbook, is required. The student is responsible for knowing 100% of the belt requirements for their test. If you need to obtain a new belt requirement sheet, please use the request form.
Be prepared to show up early to allow for check-in, the oral part of the test, and warm-up. Parents, siblings, and friends are welcome to watch, provided they can be quiet. Video and still cameras are allowed. Please be courteous and thoughtful of others.
Each student is responsible for supplying their own sparring gear. It is necessary to incorporate this rule for proper safety and health. We are unable to supply everyone with proper fitting gear. The minimum requirement is hand, foot, and head gear. We highly recommend mouth guards for all, chest protection for girls (12 & up), and groin protection for boys. If you need to purchase any or all of these items, contact Sigung Peel promptly to receive gear by the time of testing. Sigung Peel cannot guarantee delivery of gear if ordered after the 3rd of the month, prior to testing.
Students will NOT be allowed to test if:
- If they “drop” in.
- Are late and testing has begun.
- Are not paid in full by testing day.
- Are not in FULL uniform.
- Have not completed the required essay question(s).
- Do not have their own appropriate sparring gear.
Sparring will be held the following week on Mon or Wed at the 7pm class.
